Xamarin iOS 13.4 simulator stuck loading when execution mode is set to background fetch

I'm trying to set up a background update feature, but the simulator won't load. It looks like its trying to load, but it just cycles between 'Checking Server', 'Connecting to Mac', and 'Connected' endlessly. It launched fine before I set the Execution Mode to Background Fetch and works when I set it back to default.

I am running on Visual Studio 2019 16.5.4 for windows. The mac I am pairing to is not in the same building as me and is connected through a vpn.

Is there some setting I need to change or could this be a result of an insufficient connection with the mac?

The simulator log repeats this with just the [Server] number changing:
